Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”
PHOENIX – Arizonans may not get a chance to vote Green at the next election.
The theory of backlash from politicians ramming crap down citizens’ throat doesn’t seem to apply in Arizona. The Republicans have rammed all kinds of partisan and ideological crap down our throats and still plan to keep doing it.
Sheesh, what did they expect?
The federal government released data Wednesday showing only about 750 Arizona residents have enrolled in the online health insurance marketplace that is a key part of President Barack Obama’s health care law.
The group of Congressmen who are grilling Secretary Sebelius are pushing an agenda that is a little hard to follow. The issue is that some citizens are going to lose their existing health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act. In a left-handed way this is correct. The ACA offers policies which have more coverage at lower cost and, accordingly, many insurance companies are canceling policies which have become overpriced and are non-competitive ever since ACA was rolled out. The decisions to cancel certain overpriced policies were made by the insurance companies because it made economic sense. There is little future in offering policies which are not competitive because they have less coverage at higher cost.
PHOENIX — Ken Bennett formally kicked off his bid to become governor Tuesday with a proposal to replace the state's income tax by increasing the number of goods and services subject to the state sales tax.
“Buy this stock. Based upon conservative talk radio in northern California where they are peeing in their pants over Obamacare, I recommend buying the company that manufactures ‘Depends.’”
Is America’s center rising again? It certainly seems that way.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
Either the American People can believe that Barack Hussein Obama is stupid (Occidental College, Columbia University, Harvard University, past President of the Harvard Law Review, former Visiting Law and Government Fellow University of Chicago, author of four books, former Illinois State Senator, former U.S. Senator and twice elected to be the President of the United States of America) or that he is a liar.
“No need to be sad Sen. McCain. People still remember your running for president and the elevator you had installed for your car. Also in the ready room of every US Military airbase I’m sure there is a poster of you in your flight suit with the inscription — ‘hey blank-blank these things are expensive, Don’t McCain your plane!’ ”
PHOENIX — Twice defeated in congressional races and rebuffed by voters in his bid to change election laws, radio station owner Rick Murphy is now trying to become the state's chief executive.
PHOENIX — A new poll suggests that Arizona voters insist they're mad as hell and are ready to throw the current crop of bums out of Congress. But it remains to be seen whether the anger at government dysfunction carries through to next year's general election — and whether voters find the alternatives they are offered are any better.
Oh, the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” going on in conservative circles and right-wing think tanks after their embarrassing loss of face during the recent installment of “right-wing conservatives Shutter the U.S. Government” Once Again!
PHOENIX — Tom Horne is crowing that he's leading a GOP primary challenger and his likely Democratic foe — or at least he was.
Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.
PHOENIX — Counties have verified there are enough valid signatures on petitions to give voters the last word on extensive changes in election laws pushed through the Republican-controlled Legislature.
